Do we need to change that Long Life Coolant anyway?

I've seen folks complaining about dirt getting trapped between condenser and radiator. From looking at cars at the yard, it looks like this is mostly an issue in vehicles where rad was replaced and the rubber skirt on the top and bottom of the radiator has not been replaced/transferred from the old rad. In Chrysler speak this part is known as radiator seal upper and lower. The purpose of this seal/skirt is to cover the gap between the rad and the condenser, thus preventing garbage build up between the two.

Chrysler's P/N for this skirt/seal is: 5010376AA and it is about $12 each -- highly recommend replacing if yours is missing....
